HAILEY, Idaho (AP) - Runway work at a central Idaho airport that serves the resort area of Ketchum and Sun Valley has been completed.

Friedman Memorial Airport officials in Hailey tell the Idaho Mountain Express (https://bit.ly/1ttMt1v) that the runway opened Thursday.

The work involved moving a taxiway 70 feet away from the runway.

Workers shut down the runway on April 22 as part of a $34 million project intended to meet Federal Aviation Administration safety requirements. Most of the cost is being covered by a series of federal grants.

Additional work includes strengthening the pavement in an area where large, private planes park, building new taxi lanes, and expanding and relocating a terminal.

The project is expected to be finished by July 2015.
